Print vs. Electronic Reserve: what materials are suitable for EReserve?
The Library continues to maintain a print reserve collection. Books and video materials will be processed as print reserves. We may put no more than 1/3 of a copyrighted book on eReserve due to copyright restrictions.
Copies of articles and/or chapters of books will be processed as EReserves, unless you request otherwise.
The Library does not purchase current required textbooks for its collection, but faculty may place a personal copy of a required textbook on reserve.
EReserve processing time
Please allow 1 week for processing of electronic reserves, especially in the first 2 weeks of each semester.
Because of copyright restrictions, electronic reserve readings are password protected. Each course with EReserve readings will be assigned a password. We will email the password to you so that you can give it to your students.
Use of EReserve readings for future courses
After a course has ended, EReserve readings will be deactivated. When you would like them to be available for another course, please notify us and we will reactivate them.
Return of original copies
Your original copies will be available for pick up at the Circulation Desk as soon as they have been processed as EReserves. If you would prefer that we send them to your office, please notify us.
